THE BOULDER: A PHILOSOPHY FOR BOULDERING
By Francis Sanzaro
Francis Sanzaro is a climber and philosopher who believes that thinking about climbing is good for you and necessary for the sport. He shows how the pursuit of bouldering is a philosophy which can be improved and strengthened just like a muscle, benefiting both body and soul.
This enlightening book is an inspired collection of thoughts on the practice of bouldering, bringing it into conversation with arts and sports as varied as architecture, dance, skateboarding, painting, parkour, martial arts and gymnastics. Reading it will enrich your experience of climbing and encourage you to appreciate the natural physicality and artful play of bouldering.
With a foreword by John Gill, who says:
"Finding a climber who perceives bouldering as a moving meditation, or one who values form and style far beyond difficulty, is a daunting task . . . bouldering needs its own analytical literature. In this book, Francis Sanzaro takes a significant step in that direction."
